Metaforce

Formerly known as URDE

Status: Metroid Prime 1 In-Game (all retail GC & Wii versions)

Official Discord Channel: https://discord.gg/AMBVFuf

Download

This project is currently in Alpha state, so expect bugs.
Builds available at https://releases.axiodl.com.

Platform Support

  • Windows 10 (64-bit, D3D11 / Vulkan)
  • macOS 10.15+ (Metal)
  • Linux (Vulkan)
    • Follow this guide to set up Vulkan & appropriate drivers for your distro.

Usage (GUI)

Windows:

  • Open metaforce-gui.exe

macOS:

  • Open Metaforce.app

Linux:

  • Ensure AppImage is marked as executable: chmod +x Metaforce-*.AppImage
  • Open Metaforce-*.AppImage

CLI usage (GC versions)

  • Extract ISO: hecl extract [path].iso -o mp1
    • mp1 can be substituted with the directory name of your choice
  • Repackage game for Metaforce: cd mp1; hecl package
  • Run Metaforce: metaforce mp1/out

CLI usage (Wii versions)

IMPORTANT: Trilogy main menu currently doesn't work, and requires the --warp 1 0 command line arguments to get in-game.

NFS files dumped from Metroid Prime Trilogy on Wii U VC can be used directly without converting to ISO.

  • Extract ISO or NFS: hecl extract [path].[iso/nfs] -o mpt
    • mpt can be substituted with the directory name of your choice
  • Repackage game for Metaforce: cd mpt; hecl package MP1
    • The MP1 parameter is important here.
  • Run Metaforce: metaforce mpt/out --warp 1 0

Metaforce options (non-exhaustive)

  • -l: Enable console logging
  • --warp [worldid] [areaid]: Warp to a specific world/area. Example: --warp 2 2
  • +developer=1: Enable developer UI

Prep Directions

git clone --recursive https://github.com/AxioDL/metaforce.git
cd metaforce

Update Directions

cd metaforce
git pull
git submodule update --recursive

Build Directions

For Windows, it's recommended to use Visual Studio. See below.

ninja (Windows/macOS/Linux)

Builds using RelWithDebInfo by default.

cmake -B out -G Ninja # add extra options here
cmake --build out --target metaforce hecl visigen

CMake configure options

  • Build in debug mode (slower runtime speed, better backtraces): -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug
  • Use clang+lld (faster linking): -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=clang -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=clang++
  • Optimize for current CPU (resulting binaries are not portable): -DMETAFORCE_VECTOR_ISA=native

CLion (Windows/macOS/Linux)

(main development / debugging IDE)

Open the repository's CMakeLists.txt.

Optionally configure CMake options via File > Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > CMake.

Qt Creator (Windows/macOS/Linux)

Open the repository's CMakeLists.txt via File > Open File or Project.

Configure the desired CMake targets to build in the Projects area of the IDE.

Visual Studio (Windows)

Verify all required VS packages are installed from the above Build Prerequisites section.

Open the metaforce directory in Visual Studio (imports CMake configuration).

MSVC and clang-cl configurations should import automatically.

Xcode (macOS)

cmake -G Xcode ../metaforce

Then open metaforce.xcodeproj

Optional Debug Models

We provide custom debug models for use to visualize certain aspects of the game such as lighting, in order to use these models you may download them from https://axiodl.com/files/debug_models.zip and extract to MP1/URDE in an existing HECL project (assuming paths are relative), then run the following command:

hecl package MP1/URDE

This will cook and package the debug models and will automatically enable rendering of lights in a debug build of Metaforce.

Blender Known Issues

On Windows it is known that paths >240 characters will cause blender to fail while attempting to open/create a file, causing hecl to stall.
We currently do not have a good fix for this issue, however a workaround is to place hecl near the root of your directory tree and executing from there e.g:
D:\HECLProjects\
Another work around is to install a version of python that matches the one blender ships with and renaming the python directory in the blender directory to python.bak.
This will force blender to use the system's python if it's available and will not have the same path limitation
